Scaling Ecological Dynamics: Self-Organization, Hierarchical Structure, and Ecological Resilience

Scaling Ecological Dynamics: Self-Organization, Hierarchical Structure, and Ecological Resilience Assessing impacts of global change is complicated by the problems associated with translating models and data across spatial and temporal scales. One of the major problems of ecological scaling is the dynamic, self-organized nature of ecosystems. Ecological organization emerges from the interaction of structures and processes operating at different scales. The resilience of ecological organization to changes in key cross-scale processes can be used to assess the contexts within which scaling methods function well, need adjustment, and break down. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Climatic Change Springer Journals

Abstract

Assessing impacts of global change is complicated by the problems associated with translating models and data across spatial and temporal scales. One of the major problems of ecological scaling is the dynamic, self-organized nature of ecosystems. Ecological organization emerges from the interaction of structures and processes operating at different scales. The resilience of ecological organization to changes in key cross-scale processes can be used to assess the contexts within which scaling methods function well, need adjustment, and break down.
